I've read and will pray for everyone's requests.
A couple personal notes: Lydia -- I know the stress of finding a job - I hope and pray that will go well for you. And Zerbie -- feel better soon, friend! And, good Lord, woman -- I'll send you a few pounds if you need 'em -- I've got plenty extra (oy!).
I have one request. My partner suffers from chronic pain (of unknown origin). She's been having a pretty bad flare up. We went to the doctor yesterday, but no answers yet. It has been a hard road, and puts stress on us both. I hate to see her suffering so, especially when there's nothing I can do about it to make her feel better. All the love in the world can't make pain go away -- it breaks my heart to see her go through this. At 4 a.m. this morning I was on the way to the 24 hour pharmacy to fill her pain meds prescription -- it had gotten that bad -- and I just said "Please God, help." It's the only prayer I can think of for this situation right now. Thanks, y'all.
